Murdo always had sevants living in the farm house from 1840s up until his death in 1868. After that his son, Alexander, had servants living with them. They usual had from 3-6 servants in the house. In the 1860s they even had a nurse, living with them, but Murdo son & elderly mother were ill then. Sadly they both died soon afterwards.
